I am back with a quick update and to share my excitement. I have popped my Illamasqua cherry, I have finally gotten around to purchasing 3 products from them and I'm loving them.
I got their Matt Primer and I have to say that if you have oily skin, this is a primer for you! I also got 2 of their matte lipsticks. I got Flare (Bright Orange) & Apocalips (Turquoise), these two colours are out of this world. Absolutely pigmented and very bright. Definitely not for the faint hearted. Matte Lipsticks can tend to be quite drying, no matter which brand it is. I believe in a good lip prep before hand to keep your luscious lips nice and moist through out the day.

I look forward to some future purchases from Illamasqua and hopefully to add them to my professional makeup kit. I apologise if I have yet to introduce you to Bob (my makeup case). Yes I gave my makeup case a name and it's a boy! hahaha :)
I'm addicted to Instax photos as of late too. I'm finally picking it up again and taking photos. Mainly during shoots so they're like little sneak peaks that you can be expecting to pop up on this blog soon ;)

Now to finish off the post with makeup. I have to share makeup related after all! Let me know what you think of the various looks I've been sporting as of late. I've tried some different lips and then went with hair style change without cutting or colouring it. I'm still trying to grow out my hair before I decide on a style and colour.
